*The HomeAdvantage program is made available to members through a relationship between TwinStar Credit Union and CU Realty Services. Program cash rewards are awarded by CU Realty Services to buyers and sellers who select and use a real estate agent in the HomeAdvantage network of approved agents. Home buyers or sellers are not eligible for the cash reward if they use an agent outside this network. Using TwinStar Credit Union for a mortgage is not a requirement to earn a cash reward. Cash reward amounts are dependent on the commissions paid to the agent. TwinStar Credit Union has specific rules on how your cash reward will be paid out. Cash reward incentives are available in most states; however, are void where prohibited by law or by the lender. Please consult with a TwinStar mortgage lending officer to get details that may affect you.
